Firefighters save dog with mouth-to-snout resuscitation

D61_thumb By George | February 08, 2012 | Comments (11)

These amazing firefighters saved a dog with mouth-to-snout resuscitation after the dog was caught in a blaze in the family home in Wausau, Wisconsin. The family was away from the home when the fire broke out and trapped the family's two cats and pet dog Koda inside.

Firefighters managed to get into the home and get the animals out. They found Koda, a seven-year-old Labrador Retriever in shock, sitting in a rocking chair in the room where the fire is believed to have started.

When they got the dog to safety, they performed mouth-to-snout resuscitation. They also used an oxygen mask to revive him. Koda was taken to two different pet hospitals, staying overnight at the second to recover.

Hi Kim, thanks for trying. I had a similar problem at first, when I tried to add a picture. Turns out I was trying to too large a file (it was bigger than 10 MB). DogHeirs said I needed to upload photos that were smaller in size and that were saved in a proper format (saved as: .jpg, .jpeg, .pjpeg, .gif, .png, .xpng). Maybe that will help you.

I just wanted to say that your thoughts and words of kindess for Koda and our family are so appreciated! Koda is doing awesome, and I can honestly say ive never loved a dog more then I do him!

Firemen rock!! They really do their jobs for everyone ! This was a tearjerker.
Poor dog. Hope he fully recovered. Thumbs up to the firefighters - well done lads. What would we do without people like you.
This seriously made me tear up. I don't know what I would do if I lost my lab to a house fire. I'm glad those fire fighters could save the animals (:
